1st Anniversary of Rajans 94 Official Blog

1st Anniversary

The official blog of Dharmaraja College, Kandy – Old Boys Group of 94 which is hosted on the URL http://dharmaraja94.blogspot.com was created on 1st of October 2009. The need for very own web site was strongly discussed during the Group’s Annual Trip (2009). Due to practical issues it was not an easy task to setup a web site and keep it updated and running smoothly. Therefore we all decided to create a blog. The idea was soon implemented. With the contribution of many colleagues it became a reality. During the past year there were 2421 visits to this blog from all around the world which is about 7 visits per day. On 4th May 2010 it recorded the highest number of visits which is 64.

The Very First Medical Campaign of Rajans Group of 94

The very first medical campaign of Rajans Group of 94 was held in 14th of August 2004 at Kalaweldeniya for a school in the vicinity of Laxapana Power Station which is about 120 km away from Kandy town. The name of the school is CP/H/Kalaweldeniya Vidyalaya

Medical Campaign - 2010 - Ilukwewa

The 5th Annual Medical Campaign of the Rajans OBU Group of 94 was held at Ilukwewa Primary School in Sigiriya on 10th of July 2010. The location was selected from number of proposed schools that requested a helping hand. Among those locations two of the extremes were selected and the committee of our group along with Mr Weerakoon (Vice Principal of DRCK) visited them in order to make the final decision. Ilukwewa Primary School was selected by considering various facts. It is the most rural school in Higurakgoda educational zone and it is beyond the reach of physician thus a medical aid is unavailable even for an emergency. The other major fact was that it is situated within the danger zone of wild elephant yet a picturesque village.

This is how the Sinhala Newspaper Divaina reported it on 31st August 2010 about this charity service. (The picture courtesy of Indikae Basnayake and Anjula De Silva of Group of 94)

Premier Rugby Trophy - 2010

Rajans Vs Royal - Panadura

Mr Hisham Abdeen's magic created a whirlwind as Rajans crushed Royal - Panadura 75 to 10. Rajans dominated the match from the very first second till the final whistle. The spectators were stunned as they could not believe their eyes how the Rajans Rugby team was evolved through past few days. It's indeed a sign of comeback from the Rajans!

This is what the local newspaper Daily Mirror has to say . . .

Dharmaraja in crushing win over Royal Panadura

In what was expected to be an exciting quarter final game of the Under 20 Premier inter-schools knockout rugby tournament between Dharmaraja and Royal Panadura in fact turned out to be a one sided affair with the Rajans running away convincing winners by 75 points to 10 at Longden Place yesterday.

The fast open rugby played by Dharmaraja who have contested in the top division for over three seasons was too much for Royal Panadura who emerged the Division 1C champions this season.

The Panadura boys would have no doubt realised the disparity of the standards in confronting a top division side and were rattled by the Rajans from the word go. Dharmaraja having taken a comfortable 41-05 lead in the first half accumulated their points through five goals and eight tries as against the two tries by Royal Panadura.

For Dharmaraja fly half Rochana Hettiarachchi scored three tries with centre Buwaneka Udagamuwa and No8 Kavindu Hettiarachchi going over twice. One try each was scored by scrum half Roshan Wickramaratne, hooker Gihan Jayasinghe, full back Kavinda Hettiarachchi, flanker Kavinda Jayasundara and wing three quarter Dilantha Madusanka while Rochana made the five conversions.

Rajans Vs Lumbini (Semi-final)

Rajans were the favorites to win this semi final match played on 7th of July 2010 at CR & FC grounds. Unfortunately we lost it 19 to 30 even after leading in the lemons by 10 to 12.

Rajans Group of 94 decided to publish updates of the 2010 rugby season on this blog. As you know large number of matches to be played in this season it is impossible to give all the details of them and also this blog is dedicated to the activities of OBU Group of 94. So please note that you will find the updates of the matches only relating to Dharamaraja College. Thanks!

PS : To remain in the division "A" we must win at least two matches. The other factor is the points played For us (PF) . Therefore it is very important to win the matches as well as to score more points

1. Dharmaraja Vs Trinity
Trinity won by 44-5 in the match played at Pallekele
DRC Vs TCK

2. Dharmaraja Vs Cambrians (Prince of Wales)
Rajans beat Prince of Wales 29-11 in the match played at Longden Place



3. Dharmaraja Vs Royal
Rajans beaten by Royal college 27-5 in the match played at Royal Sports Complex - Colombo



4. Dharmaraja Vs St. Peter's
Rajans beaten by Peterites 58-0 in the match played in St Peter's grounds - Bambalapitiya.
St Peters rugby team is undoubtedly the best team in Division A. It is not a sloppy performance to lose to them by 58-0 *Click Here to read more about this on Sunday Times*



5. Dharmaraja Vs Kingswood
Rajans lost to KCK by 43-20 in the match played in Bogambara stadium - Kandy. The second half was dominated by the Rajans but couldn't beat the arch-rivals. *Click Here to read more about this on Sunday Times*


6. Dharmaraja Vs St Thomas (Mount Lavinia)
Rajans lost to St. Thomas College Mt Lavinia by 45- 22 in the match played in Bogambara stadium - Kandy. Again the second half was dominated by the Rajans and scored all of the points but unable to beat STC



7. Dharmaraja Vs Wesley
Rajans lost to Wesley College by 23 - 7 in the match played in Bogambara stadium - Kandy. Rajans had everything against the Wesley . . . the venue, huge ground support, advantage of home town and everything . . . but couldn't beat Wesley to get the chance to survive in Division 1 - A. With this loss Rajans will most probably fall into the Division 1 - B and have to remain for at least one year . . . A big blow for Rajans and Rajans Rugby. The effort of many people including well-wishers of Dharmaraja was wasted in vain . . .



8. Dharmaraja Vs St Anthony's
This match started with the unexpected defeat to the Wesley. It was the first match under the new consultant coach Mr Hisham Abdeen one of the greatest rugby players of all time. He did a lot to improve the Rajans Rugby. Unfortunately 5 of the key players were injured (including captain and his assistant) when he commenced training. At the lemons Rajans lead by 13 to 12 and what we saw was unbelievable .. ball handling, kicking and everything was improved marvelously. Rajans played like real lions .. never seen played like that in this season. But when Anthonians scored a try in the second half everything turned the other way. Even though it is a hear breaker for Rajans it showed us that we have the talents and it also showed us that this talent can only be put in use by training and planing the game in a professional way. With this defeat we will fall into Division 1-B and it showed us a lot of lessons. So a brand new start is what we need now .. it should be a well planed process .. It's not the time to worry but it's time to think and do the corrections then we will have the sun shining on us ..

9. Dharmaraja Vs Isipathana
The final league match of the Rajans was a heart-breaker as we lost to Isipathana by 17 - 19. At the lemons we were leading by 12 - 3. The spectators saw the best performance of Rajans rugby team in this season at this game. Mr Hisham Abdeen the vetern coach did a lot for the upliftment of the Rajans Rugby in a short time and we saw some tremendous improvement in the team.


The conclusion


Rajans 2010 Rugby season was not a good one for us as we started it with a huge defeat by TCK. Then won the game against the Cambrians and it gave a new hope for the Rajans Rugby fans. But again lost to Royal and struggled to get into the game as we continued the losing pattern. Before the match against Wesley college was played Rajans were in 8th position of the league table and we had a good chance of winning it. It was held in Kandy so we had a good bunch of supporters but all hell broke loose as we were comprehensively defeated by Wesley collage. This defeat was so crucial as it dragged us to 9th place and kicked us out of the Division 1A. With this unexpected defeat ORRFA took a vital decision to bring a consultant coach.. a match winner. It was the legend Mr Hisham Abdeen. Unfortunately he had very short time. At this time 5 of the key players of our team were injured including captain and his assistant. But Mr Abdeen did a great job and the team performed tremendously. The match against the SACK was lost after leading in the first half and in the game against Isipathana was the same. If we had his service from the beginning of the season we may have still be in Division 1-A.


As we fell into the losing path there was a big disfavour for the present coach Mr C.S Ekanayake. It continued to grow as the team showed very poor performance. Many good players switch the schools looking for better opportunities. Now everything is over and Dharmaraja College will fall into Division 1-B and have to fight back to get the lost pride. Now it’s the time for the officials to take things seriously and act wisely or the Rajans Rugby will die a slow death. There is a huge campaign to build a rugby stadium for Rajans and it is a very high budget project with long term plan. But if this trend is continued there won’t be a rugby team in our college to play in that ground. We must think and choose the correct decision for the sake of Rajans Rugby …

Another lesson is learned.. !

The Vehicle Parade

As it was scheduled the group members gathered to the Boowelikada Junction early in the morning with their vehicles geared up with Rajans flags, Stickers and with catchwords. The vehicle line-up was so lengthy which made a huge traffic jam in the town. The parade was lead by four of the two wheeled monster bikes ridden by our own stuntmen. Then came the four wheeled screamers .. ranging from thunderous Subaru STi to lightning fast Hondas. It was a very eye-catching moment when we parade the Kandy city for about two hours.

The vehicle parade reached the ground then we cheered up the team and had some fun. Some of our teachers joined us and resurrected the memories.

Olcott Day - 2010 February 17

Revival of Buddhism and theosophists
Prof. C.V. Agarwal Theosophical Society, Adyar, Chennai
(This article was published in the Daily News a few years ago. The writer passed away recently in India)

Sri Lanka has been a leading Buddhist country. It is not quite correct to speak of the decline of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. The invaders tried to vanquish it by subjugating this peace-loving land which did not believe in the rule of the arms. All our attempts were made over very many years to prevent the noble tenets from spreading in the land.


Colonel H.S. Olcott

Colonel H.S. Olcott

The famous debate proceedings at Panadura led by Ven. Mohottiwatte Gunananda were published in the Ceylon Times, later named the Times of Ceylon. Later a books was brought out on the debate which fell in the hands of Colonel H.S. Olcott, the President Founder of the Theosophical Society, in America. He and Madam H.P. Blavatsky, (H.P.B.) The co-founder both of whom had declared themselves Buddhists although they had not taken Panchasila as there was none in America to administer it.

Colonel Olcott sent a copy ‘Isis Unveiled’ written by H.P.B. to Ven. Gunananda who opened correspondence with Col. Olcott and started quoting from the book in his powerful lectures. Distressed at the plight of the Buddhists, Col. Olcott and H.P.B. arrived in Galle on May 17 1880 and were received by a large crowd led by the leading monks. They took Panchasila at Vijayananda Vihara at Galle.

Three-pronged strategy

After discussions with the Venerable monks and assessing the situation Col. Olcott devised a three-pronged strategy to arrest the prevailing decadence, namely, Buddhist education, well-planned propaganda and sound organization.

He was distressed at the practices enforced on faithful Buddhists, such as baptizing the child in Church (Anagarika Dharmapala was given the name Don David), Solemnizing the Buddhist Marriages by a Church Ceremony, Christian oath to be taken in the court, not to speak of cutting of Bo Trees, no holidays on Buddhist festivals like the Vesak Full Moon Day and so on and on.

There were only two Buddhist schools as against 805 run by Christian missionaries. So no wonder the educated citizens were turning against the noble Dhamma.

Col. Olcott started strenuous lecture tours, accompanied by young Dharmapala as translator, reviving in the minds of the people the glory and the magnificence of their Dhamma and started a series of Buddhist schools for which he had to bring theosophists from the West. At the time of his death in 1907 the number of the schools rose to nearly 300. A noteworthy point is that none of his schools were named Olcott School.

This is one of the examples of his self effacing character which needs to be emulated by others, giving credits to the youngsters and encouraging them. Details of many contributions by Olcott, duly authenticated are given in the book ‘Buddhist and Theosophical Movements’ published by the Mahabodhi Society of India Saranath.

Forging unity

Col Olcott did memorable service by forging unity not only within Theravadians but also with Mahayana Tradition as is evidenced by leaders of all the schools signing ‘Fourteen Fundamental Buddhist Beliefs.’ Col. Olcott is the only non ordained monk given the authority by high priests led by Ven. Sumangala Nayaka Thera to “Accept and Register as Buddhist Persons of any nation who may make to him application, to administer to them the ‘Three Refugees and Five Precepts.’ Col. Olcott had an invitation sent to Buddhists to send a representative to the World.

Parliament of Religions, Chicago in 1893 for which purpose the Theosophists paid fare, provided hospitality and all facilities to the 29-year Anagarika Dharmapala who led the so-called revival of Buddhism in India and elsewhere.

Out of very many remarkable contributions, two need special mention.

One is the ‘Buddhist Chatechism’ giving in brief the essential tenets suitable for youngsters and the Buddhist flag symbol of unity now adopted world over.

Dharmapala continued to appreciate the worth and value of Col. Olcott’s advice, as is evident from a letter he wrote on May 20, 1922 to the principal of the Mahabodhi College, Colombo. Lamenting that the advice of Colonel Olcott given forty years earlier to bring out a series of Buddhist readers had not been acted upon and urging that the books be brought at the earliest.

Unique distinction

In recognition of the invaluable and selfless services rendered by Colonel Olcott to the cause of Buddhism, education and the Theosophical Society of Sri Lanka, the Parliament of Sri Lanka conferred on him the unique distinction of naming him as one of the heroes of Sri Lanka.

He is the only foreigner on the role of national heroes. Not only this, on February 17, 1967 the 60th Anniversary of Colonel Olcott’s passing away, a life size statue of him was erected at Norris Road, Colombo, which was renamed Olcott Mawatha. Another statue of Colonel Olcott was erected by the Cultural Department at Galle, where he and Madam Blavatsky accepted the five precepts in 1880.

A stamp was issued on December 9, 1967 in honour of Colonel Olcott, to mark the 60th Anniversary of his passing away by Dudley Senanayake, the then Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, paying tribute to Colonel Olcott on that occasion said, “At a time when Buddhism was on the wane in Ceylon, Colonel Henry Steele Olcott came to Ceylon in May 1880 and awakened its people to fight to regain their Buddhist heritage.... Colonel Olcott can be considered one of the heroes in the struggle of our independence and a pioneer of the present religious, national and cultural revival. Colonel Olcott’s visit to this country is a landmark in the history of Buddhism in Ceylon.”

Then Prime Minister R Premadasa, wrote in June 1, 1978. “The Buddhist Theosophical Society was the focal point of this movement against injustice and discrimination. With the assistance of Madam Blavatsky, and especially Colonel. H.S. Olcott, the Buddhists set up a newspaper, ‘Sarasavi Sandares,’ a Buddhist Publicity Fund and a Buddhist Educational Fund.

The Theosophical Society had many successes in these fields. They agitated on behalf of the Buddhists and won many concessions, such as the declaration of Vesak Day as a public holiday.

Prevention of cutting down of Bo Trees and celebrating Buddhist festivals.

In the fields of Education especially, they were very successful. The Theosophists were able to obtain the service of dedicated teachers like Leadbeater, Bowes Daley, Mary Musaeus Higgins and F.L. Woodward who built up prominent Buddhist educational institutions such as Ananda, Nalanda, Mahinda, Dharmaraja and Dharmashoka.

They were assisted by a band of local helpers drawn from both the Buddhist clergy and laity, outstanding among them were Ven. Hikkaduwe Sri Sumangala Nayaka Thera, Anagarika Dharmapala and Sir Baron Jayathileke.”

In a message dated March 26, 1980 J.R. Jayewardene, the then President of Sri Lanka, wrote as the awakener of a nation out of a long slumber, as the crusader who campaigned to regain its due place for Buddhism, as the agitator who caused the colonial government of the day to declare the Vesak Full Moon Day a statutory holiday in Sri Lanka (1885) as the designer of the now internationally famous Buddhist flag (1885) and as the founder of national and educational institutions like Ananda College, (1886) Colonel lives forever in our memories.”
